Van Gogh never went to Japan. He created his own image of the country thanks to the Japanese prints he eagerly collected and closely studied. The colourful and exotic images greatly inspired him.
Van Gogh started to copy Japanese prints to better understand them. Doing so, he developed a ‘Japanese eye’ that would give his work a new direction. What was this Japanese way of looking? Discover more in the exhibition Van Gogh & Japan.
Van Gogh & Japan is a temporary exhibition. This spring, tickets are only available online. A limited number of tickets are available for each starting time. Those who book in advance have plenty of choice.
